Morocco Series: A tour of my favorite Moroccan guest house





In between hostel stays, Chris and I treated ourselves to a night in the Riad Lalla Mogador, in the city Essaouira. It's actually priced really reasonably and just feels like a treat!

*please be patient during photo upload - I've specially uploaded higher-res images so you guys get extra detail! :)



Our room was very authentic and the furnishings reflected the craft/artisan trade that flourishes in Essaouira












Outside our room


Traditional Moroccan homes have no roof in the center, and an open courtyard area in the middle.









The second floor halls


Looking up from the second floor




Plenty of nooks to relax


You take your brunch on the roof, which has some great views - see the beach in the back?

See lots more gorgeous photos at their site, http://www.riadlalla-essaouira.com/

The color palate is kind of amazing. I love how the colors are so saturated and bold but they all work together and they aren't overwhelming. Thanks for posting!

Wonderful saturated primary colors! they speak of sun and exotic sounds ans smells - The mustered yellow almost reads as gold... they remind me of Valpar's Globetrotting palette - beautiful!
